I am so happy to report that my miniature painting titled Tatiana (2.5 x 3.5 inches, acrylic) won the Best Cat -Domestic or Wild award at the 39th Annual International Miniature Art Show hosted by Miniature Art Society of Florida.
Tatiana was a beautiful Siberian tiger killed at a tragic incident at the San Francisco Zoo on the Christmas day, 2007. Provoked by three young men, she leaped and clawed out of her enclosure, then shot and killed by the police. She was only four years old.
The show exhibits over 800 exquisite miniature paintings from artists around the world. The show will be held at Dunedin Fine Art Center in Florida from January 19 through February 9, 2014. If you have a chance, go to the show. You will be amazed.
